lightning email composer

Is it possible to open the lightning email composer from a lightning component similar to what we could do with the email author in classic?
For example: /email/author/emailauthor.jsp?p2_lkid={!Case.ContactId}&rtype=003&p3_lkid={!Case.Id}

I have the same question, any ideas on this?

Hi eyal,

You can build email compser using the custom component and then you can use that component in quick action or in record pages.

Reference Links:


If you want to auto populate the Email or any additional details automatically then use the Force:recordid to get the current page record id then in 
the do Init the related details using the server side call back functionality.


just use the Email Send button function from the above Link.

Can you please Let me know if it helps or not!!!

If it helps don't forget to mark this as a best answer!!!

Thanks Maharajan for your reply. Your answer indeed gets me closer to what I am looking but what I really want is to use the standard Salesforce lightning email composer as it gives reacher functionality and does not require me to code anything.
